    The Single Tweet From Barry O'Farrell That Unleashed Musicians Fury

    #notearsshed

    Music website Stony Roads reports Kings Cross nightclub The Backroom has been forced to close its doors due to the impact of the city's lock-out laws.

    The architect of the laws, former New South Wales Premier Barry O'Farrell was tagged in the post. Well, what happened next was a little classless.

    The "O'Farrell Laws" force all Sydney city venues to stop serving customers at 3am.

    Prominent DJ and anti-lock out campaigner Andrew Levins pointed out the resigning premier may have a future career.

    The host of Triple J's Drive show Lindsay McDougall was also angry.

    And so was local promoter Adam Lewis.

    .@barryofarrell @StoneyRoads Wow, what's up with having contempt? This is a small business that's had to close. At least show some grace.
